Some of the shows this year banned models that were too thin or gave the wrong impression. Do you think it is right to have this ban on models???

What shows are doing this? Because I would like to support the show by watching them. I think it a wonderful idea to ban models for being to thin. It is bad enough that the media is surrounded by too thin actresses and models that becoe teens' role models. Teens face to much that they also have to face the world they love being too thin. As if it is not already hard to endoure the awkward phases of puberty. Some teens resort to eating disorders just to look like their role models. Have you even seen the movie, 'Never Been Kissed'? There are the popular teen girls that make the statement, "That's it! Nothing but water and Exlax until prom." Sadly, there are many girls like this is America. And if more models were banned for being too thin, then maybe that would impact these other girls to realize there is such thing as unhealthy level of thinness.

i think it's a good thing as models can be very influential too especially on those young girls..it may resulted in a lot of anorexia cases as they will be thinking that you have to be thin to be accepted into the society
